Romanian Folk Rock

Pasărea Colibri - 10 ani vol.2

In 2007 I was trapped on a bus travelling into Transylvania. The bus driver played one tape over and over again and I learned to love the strange and interesting music that he tortured us with.

I ended up getting hold of a copy of an album which had a song called Vara La Tara on it because that was the catchiest tune. It turnsout the album is the second half of a concert that was recorded in The Children's Place in Bucharest in December 2002. The band were huge in Romania for 11 years but disbanded in 2003.

The name of the band Pasarea Colibri is a type of bird similar to a hummingbird.
